Coastal Pines Technical College Announces 2015 EAGLE Nominees & Winner
Sarah Williams Will Represent CPTC at the EAGLE Leadership Institute
Six Coastal Pines Technical College adult education students were nominated by their instructor for the 2015 Exceptional Adult Georgian in Literacy Education (EAGLE) award. On November 3 the six outstanding students participated in a competition for the title of “Coastal Pines Technical College 2015 EAGLE Winner.” Following the selection process, nominees were celebrated at the Economic Development Training Center on the Waycross campus where the winner was announced.
To kick off the event, CPTC President, Dr. Glenn Deibert, and Adult Education Executive Director Kelly Peacock recognized and congratulated students for their accomplishments. Then Peacock announced the winner.
Sarah Williams (Glynn) is the 2015 EAGLE award recipient for Coastal Pines Technical College (CPTC) and will represent the College at the EAGLE Leadership Institute in Atlanta in March. The Leadership Institute recognizes and honors those students who have demonstrated superior achievement in adult education classes and programs.
Amy Rewis of Charlton County was selected as the runner up for the 2015 EAGLE program and will assume the role and responsibilities of the EAGLE winner, in the event Ms. Williams is not able to do so. Both students were given a gift.
On behalf of Mayor Clarence Billups and the city of Waycross, Hazel Coffee with CPTC presented a plaque to Dr. Deibert which proclaims November 3 - 9, 2014, as EAGLE week in Waycross. The proclamation calls upon all citizens to congratulate EAGLE nominees and make others aware of the importance of adult education to the health and growth of the community.
Following the presentation of the proclamation, Kelly Peacock introduced the EAGLE nominees: Angela Darling (Appling), Amy Rewis (Charlton), Sarah Williams (Glynn), Brandon Price, (Pierce), DeAudra Thomas (Ware), and Marsha Strong (Wayne). “These students were nominated by their instructors to represent their respective Adult Education programs as the outstanding student,” noted Peacock.
Toni Frawley presented the honorees with a special gift to signify their accomplishments, and the nominating instructors presented their respective students with the 2015 EAGLE award medallion.
“Earlier today, these outstanding students participated in an EAGLE competition where they were judged on an essay that they composed about the positive impact of Adult Education, a speech that they delivered addressing why Adult Education is important in Georgia, and a panel interview,” said Peacock. “The scores from this morning’s competition have been tabulated and I am honored to announce this year’s EAGLE runner-up and winner.”
Ms. Peacock then announced Amy Rewis as the runner up and Sarah Williams as the outstanding adult education student. She thanked all those involved in the selection process and the recognition ceremony. She also recognized Jerry J’s for providing lunch for the judges.
EAGLE is the first statewide program in the nation that recognizes and rewards excellence among students enrolled in adult education programs. The program is designed to create greater awareness of educational opportunities that are available in local communities across the state and to foster greater involvement in lifelong learning pursuits. The Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) through its Office of Adult Education (OAE) sponsors the annual EAGLE Leadership Institute.
